Get Inspired - Fencing Taster Session for Adults

Why not give fencing a try ? Our 90-minute Taster session is designed to be a fun introduction to fencing. We assume that you have never fenced before, so no experience is needed and it costs just £10 per person. If this is enough to whet your appetite, you can join our Beginner’s course starting two weeks later, at a £10 discount.


Merici Sports Centre, Ursuline High School, The Downs, Wimbledon, London SW20 8HF


Wednesday 21st April 2021 - TBC


From 7.30 pm to 9.00 pm (check-in at 7.15 pm)

You are welcome to stay on until 9.30 pm to watch fencing and talk to club members.


£10.00 per person


Foils, jackets, plastrons, gloves and masks will be provided.


You should wear a short-sleeve T-shirt, long stretchy (track-suit) trousers, and trainers (with clean light-coloured soles). We recommend you have a spare shirt to change into afterwards.

Glasses / Contact Lenses

You might find it more practical to wear contact lenses. It is possible to fence with glasses but some care needs to be taken when putting on/taking off the mask.


There are good changing facilities and showers (remember to bring a towel). We recommend you bring a small bottle of water and keep it with you during the session.
